BFCA Nomination for Carey & Fassy

The Broadcast Film Critics Association has announced the 17th Annual Critics' Choice Movie Awards Nominees. The Broadcast Film Critics Association (BFCA) is the largest film critics organization in the United States and Canada, representing approximately 250 television, radio and online critics.

Fassy was nominated for Shame in the category of Best Actor. Also nominated was his Shame co-star Carey Mulligan for Best Supporting Actress.

The 17th annual Critics' Choice Movie Awards will be held on January 12, 2012 at the Hollywood Palladium and broadcast live on VH1. This year's ceremonies will be hosted by Rob Huebel and Paul Scheer, backed by house band Fitz and The Tantrums.

While being nominated for any award is huge honor, being nominated for a Critics' Choice Movie Award seems to improve the odds of an Oscar nomination. According to BFCA, the Critics' Choice Movie Awards are the "most accurate predictor" of an Oscar nomination, and 18 of 20 acting nominations from the 2011 CCMAs went on to earn Academy Award nominations.

This is great, more and more, Fassy seems to be headed straight for an Oscar nom. I'm soooooo happy! My only disappointment is that for all the steam Michael seems to be picking up, Steve seems to be going somewhat unnoticed. As much as I love Michael Fassbender, this movie could not have been made without Steve McQueen. He deserves as much recognition as Fassy's been getting lately.

Just my two cents.

@dshultz I completely agree! Steve is totally being left out. Steve's direction is non-traditional, more like an acquired taste. I think it's going to take some people a little longer to appreciate his direction. It's a shame really, no pun intended.
